The King of Glory

1 A Psalm of David. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,1 the world and those who dwell therein,
2 for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
3 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.
5 He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.2
7 Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!
9 Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory!
1 Or and all that fills it
2 Septuagint, Syriac, and two Hebrew manuscripts; Masoretic Text who seek your face, Jacob

Of David. A psalm.

1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.
3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place?
4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.1
5 They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.2
7 Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

1 A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

1 The earth belongs to the Lord. And so does everything in it. The world belongs to him. And so do all those who live in it.
2 He set it firmly on the oceans. He made it secure on the waters.
3 Who can go up to the temple on the hill of the Lord? Who can stand in his holy place?
4 Anyone who has clean hands and a pure heart. He does not worship the statue of a god. He doesn't use the name of that god when he makes a promise.
5 People like that will receive the Lord's blessing. When God their Savior hands down his sentence, it will be in their favor.
6 The people who look to God are like that. God of Jacob, they look to you. Selah
7 Open wide, you gates. Open up, you age‑old doors. Then the King of glory will come in.
8 Who is the King of glory? The Lord, who is strong and mighty. The Lord, who is mighty in battle.
9 Open wide, you gates. Open wide, you age‑old doors. Then the King of glory will come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord who rules over all. He is the King of glory. Selah
